Ponchos. No matter how you feel about them, they're here.

Ponchos.  No matter how you feel about them, they're here.  And they're more popular than ever!  The great thing about them is that they're "nearly a garment" that forces you to think about fitting -- before you start thinking about sweaters, and their sleeves.

Do you make the poncho short, or long?  For an adult, or child?  Male or female? With or without fringe?  What about adding a bit of surface crochet?  Color changes?  Stitch changes?  What fiber?  And for which season, summer, fall, winter, spring???  See, there's so much that needs to be taken into consideration.  :)

So, here's your chance to make an original poncho.  One that is entirely your own "dee-sign" and to do it for a good cause.  Yes, that's right, I'm hinting at a competition that's currently going on:  RAG SHOP FASHION PONCHO YARN CONTEST.  And if you haven't figured out a way to celebrate National Crochet Month yet, what can be better than a competition that helps a charity and helps you get creative with your crocheting??  I think it's an awesome opportunity!  Hurry though; the contest ends on April 30th.
